I set my goals for 2012 around New Year’s Eve. This year I made some rather big writing goals. These included: Indie publish three full-length novels, write short stories for four anthologies, and write posts for WG2E. July marks the (just over) half way mark of 2012.
Recently, I took some time to evaluate my goals and see which ones needed to be ramped up, which ones I have accomplished so far, and which ones may have fallen by the wayside.
Overall, I am on track. This is great. However, I still have a ways to go. I had told myself this was the make it or break it year for my writing career. For far too many years, I had put my writing on the back burner (way way on the back burner.) Everything took precedence over my goals. Naturally, my family still comes first. However, I had to shift around other responsibilities or let go of some or reduce others in order to fit in my 2012 writing goals. It was now or never.
I was determined to see if I could make it as a writer- and I was not getting any younger. The good news is that so far it looks like I am doing fine as a writer. My 2012 goals are pretty much on target. And if I keep up the work, I should be able to meet all of my goals by the end of the year.
What about your 2012 goals? How are you doing with your goals so far?
